Create a bold colour-popping card

This zest stamp from Catherine Pooler Designs just screams to be coloured and is the perfect stamp for creating a bold colour-popping card. As it was a zesty themed card I went for a lovely bright bold orange and paired it with a navy card base allowing that bold colour to pop! Of course, blue and orange are also complementary colours so you know they will look good together!

Create a bold colour-popping card!

bold colour-popping stamping

Start off by stamping the Zest Bouquet stamp set in Twilight Catherine Pooler Ink into hot press watercolour cardstock. In addition, stamp a couple of leaves and flowers as well. If you plan to use watercolours or watercolour markers, ensure you heat set the ink before you colour. 

For this card, I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to colour the image in with a selection of yellows, oranges and greens. In the areas with a highlight, leave these areas blank and use a paintbrush with a little water to pull your colour out over the area. This will create a highlight in the colour of the object but maintain that light bright area for the highlight. Once complete, use the coordinating die to cut this out or fussy cut this out. 

Assembling the card

For the background, die-cut the Adore Die from Catherine Pooler Designs out of white card. Use liquid adhesive to adhere this down onto a Navy card base made out of Nautica Hero Hues cardstock. Adhere the coloured image to one corner of the card and embellish with the flowers/leaves.

For the sentiment, stamp ‘squeeze the day’ from the set creating an ombre look. Ink up the stamp with Limoncello, Orange Peel and Orange Twist Catherine Pooler Inks blending the colours with one another. Add this to the front and then embellish the card with sequins from the Mystic Sequin Mix.
